We expect our investments to do more than earn a good return.
We believe that companies that properly manage environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues will be more financially sustainable and perform better over the long term.
Our investment managers take a range of factors into account when measuring the sustainability and ethical impact of an investment in a company or business, including:
- environmental - greenhouse gas emissions, natural resource consumption, waste management and other opportunities to reduce environmental impact
- social - occupational health and safety, employee welfare and product safety controls for end consumers
- governance - director remuneration, conflicts of interest, transparency, risk management and regulatory compliance.
